By: Katy Muzik / Illustrated by: Katherine Brown-Wing

Under the sea!

Down in the tropical blue sea lives a spectacular coral reef that is home to myriad fish and other creatures. Travel on a breathtaking journey over a reef crest, to a lagoon that sparkles at night, and on through mangrove roots with a baby coral searching for a home. Flashlight fish, feather duster worms, and sea squirts are just a few of the amazing animals you will encounter.

A fact-filled text accompanies this luminous journey through the sea and introduces children to some of the dangers that threaten the coral reef ecosystem. Katherine Brown-Wing's illustrations invite you on a brilliant visual adventure you'll never forget.

Esther Williams would have been right at home in these effulgent Technicolor watercolors that depict the many and varied denizens of the deep . . . Muzik's straightforward prose works nicely for the intended age range.
